Euro Sport Upper Front Stress Bar - VW Mk4 8v/VR6 12v/1.8TSKU: 18080
Stress bars are an important bolt on for all water-cooled VW 's, whether it's for street or competition use. The triangulated* design of our upper-front stress bars help to eliminate the roll and twist of the front sheet metal frame. Construction consists of heavy wall 7/8" and 3/4" diameter steel tubing and is welded to 1/4" thick steel mounting plates. Finished in gloss black powder coat.
Euro Sport upper-front stress bars require no cutting of the firewall or body modifications. Unlike some of our competitor's bars, ours are true bolt-ons which only require drilling 4 holes! Our stress bars are designed and manufactured to fit properly!
Supplied with Nutsert installation tool, bolts, washers and instructions.
Notice: Requires drilling four holes for installation.

Fast shipping installation was easy
I like it, seems to increase cornering with less traction loss. Instructions didn't give a torque table for the install rivets which caused me to break the installation bolt in the newly threaded hole. Luckily it was the fourth and last hole to install. But take caution not to over-torque. 30 minute install with the exception of the broken bolt mentioned above.
